Yep. Bear in mind that many system-wide installation, e.g. in universities, are of .0 or .1 releases and upgraded yearly. If we end up with packages depending on packages depending on a later version, bad things can happen (and _did_ happen in the 3.2.* series). For the same reason, we have become very careful not to add features into R-patched,so it should be rather unlikely that packages that work with x.y.z do not also work with x.y.0.
